Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On April 10, 2013, the European Commission decided to impose a registration obligation on biodiesel products from Argentina and Indonesia (Commission Regulation (EU) No 330/2013).
 
The following HS codes are in question: 1516.2098; 1518.0091; 1518.0095; 1518.0099; 2710.1943; 2710.1946; 2710.1947; 2710.2011; 2710.2015; 2710.2017, 3824.9097, 3826.0010 and 3826.0090.
 
The additional administrative burden discriminates against imports from the above mentioned countries. The measure is implemented in the context of anti-subsidy allegations against the two countries (see measure 5821). Hence the registration is not only an administrative burden but also a mechanism that allows for retroactive imposition of CVD duties.
 
If the anti-subsidy allegations are confirmed during the investigation, the registration obligations will allow tracking dumping from the day of the registration, which means that potential anti-subsidy duties can be imposed retroactively due to the obligations.
 
On November 25, 2013, the European Commission repealed this registration requirement after terminating the anti-subsidy investigation on imports of biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia.
